Wishing Tree Guest Book
Money may not grow on trees, but good wishes do! Have your guests write you little notes on hang tags and attach them to a tree branches instead of using a traditional guest book on your wedding day. After the reception, keep the tree on display at home as a decorative memento of the day, or slide off all the wishes and keep them in a glass vase.
First, arrange the tree branches in the tall glass vase and stabilize them with marbles. Next, cut four inch pieces of ribbon that match your wedding color theme and thread through the hangtags. (For a twist, you can use different colored hang tags for guests of the bride and guests of the groom, if you'd like. Or, we love the custom-made silhouette hang tags from sesameletterpress.com.) Once the guests have written wishes and notes to you on the tags, they'll tie them onto the branches.
